Review quote

"The full-color graphic biography of Anne, whose Holocaust-era diary has been read by millions, goes beyond the time period she recounts... It brings to life the story of the Frank family, [and] is as visually and historically accurate as possible -- down to the clothing worn by the Franks, the military uniforms of the Nazis, the furniture and layout of the Franks' secret apartment, and Bergen-Belsen, the camp where Anne died in March 1945 at age 15." --Carol Memmott, "USA"" Today" "Rather than sentimentalizing Anne's story, "Anne Frank: The Graphic Biography" sets out to provide a historical context and is packed with snippets of information about significant events, ranging from the economic crisis of 1929 to Hitler's rise to power, from the 1935 Nuremberg Laws -- which excluded Jews from German society -- to the Wannsee Conference in 1942, when the Nazis drew up plans to exterminate Europe's Jews." --Tristana Moore, "Time"show more
